Grand Trunk Trail

On Saturday, Ian and I tried one of the many trails here in Cambridge. It is called the Grand Trunk Trail. It runs parallel to the Grand River which is pretty close to our house.

This is what most of the trail looks like...

This tiny trail led us down to the river bank. The Grand River is so shallow in some parts that birds in the water look like they are walking on it. It's pretty wide but very shallow and slow moving.

About halfway up the trail we found the ruins of an old house. Pretty interesting but kind of creepy at the same time.

This picture doesn't really do justice to this waterfall. It's really steep and there is a short but very slanted bridge you have to take to get over it. It's called Devil's Creek and runs into the Grand.

Here is a shot of the river itself. It was overcast and a little bit windy but pretty nice weather (others would not agree I'm sure!).

We saw lots of wildlife hopping and flying around the trail. I saw my first cardinal which was pretty cool. Can you see a squirrel in this picture?

Yeah... neither can I.
